SanctuaryAerialGlasgow Harbour Sanctuary Housing Association have submitted a planning application for 48 flatted units for social rent in two blocks, comprising of a smaller 18 unit block to the west and a 30 unit block with associated landscaping and car parking provision. The flats are all 2 bedroom flats, of 65-70 square metres, which have been shown to have the highest demand in the area.

The site for the development is the former railway embankment which used to be Whiteinch Riverside Station. According to the application the land has been purchased from Cydeport and the embankment will be fully removed by Clydeport.

The planning reference number is 14/02947/DC and more information can be accessed via the Council’s online planning portal. All images sourced from the design statement. The last date for comments is Monday 09 March 2015.

20150216_BusStop_02Two new bus stops have been re-instated on the park side of the junction at Westland Drive and Victoria Park Drive South at the start of the expressway. The bus stops opened last weekend and will be served by the FirstBus Glasgow No 1 express service and there is one stop in each direction.

This means that the service will be more accessible for people in Whiteinch and Jordanhill and also means people will be able to get the bus directly to Victoria Park as well.
